Red Pyracantha Firethorn hedge (Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column') description

The Red Firethorn is an is an incredibly eye-catching hedge throughout the year. In May, Pyracantha 'Red Column' is blooming with bee-friendly flowers and lush green foliage, before giving way to its glossy red berries when the weather starts to get colder.

Pyracantha can also be trained to grow against a wall, creating a pretty wall feature or screen to cover any unsightly areas.

Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column' hedge plants

I bought 7 Pyracantha which arrived as described and in very good condition. The plant pots they were in however were badly damaged exposing the roots to the air. Its as well I was able to plant them the within a few days, because they wouldn’t have lasted long in the cracked and shattered pots. I doubt this happened in transit because the large box they came in was undamaged, so my guess is they were damaged at source. They’re in the garden now and appear to be doing well
